Spanish Learning Classes in Cozumel
Vacationing in a foreign land is always exciting and can be a bit scary if English is not the first language of the country you are visiting and you don't know their language!! You could ask some one for a bathroom and get handed a banana instead! The ultimate barrier to remove when trying to learn and understand a different culture is language. Once you can communicate with some one in their homeland and in their language, the final curtain is raised and an entirely different and expanded cultural experience awaits.

When visiting Mexico, most tourist destinations now have a large bi-lingual Spanish/English population and one shouldn't expect to encounter many language barrier problems. However, being willing and able to some extent to communicate in Spanish is very helpful and also alot offun!

If you think you might be interested in learning Spanish before coming to Cozumel, why not visit your local book store and pick up an entry level "Learn the Basics" type of reference book? We also invite you to visit our online comprehensive guide to Basic Spanish Phrases - Cozumel Insider's Spanish Guide. With the bookstore reference text and the Basic Phrases link above as overviews of Spanish language fundementals, you might decide you want to take your learning further while here in Cozumel on vacation.
Learning Basic Spanish in Cozumel
If you are interested in a cursory review of basic Spanish and how to pronounce various words/phrases, there is really no need to pay for a "course or class" to do this! Interestingly enough, because this is a tourist destination, there are many bi-lingual locals who would love to trade time with you and learn too!! They get to practice their English and ask questions while you do the same about Spanish! What a great way to meet new island friends too!! This is the most practical, economical and enjoyable way to see if Spanish is fun for you!

As a day visitor to Cozumel or and extended stay guest....

...just bring your reference book and a printout of the Basic Spanish Phrases guide along with you on your Cozumel vacation. Then visit your hotel lobby, a bar, a restaurant, your dive shop, etc. and ask around to see if there is some one who is interested in sharing this sort of experience with you. Chances are there is some one and the most it might cost you is a couple of tacos or something similar. This gives you the flexibility to spend as little or as much time learning Spanish as you like on your vacation here in Cozumel!

Now.....If you find learning Spanish exciting and challenging and you've tackled the basics and want to move up a notch, then you need a different level of Spanish speaking person to really teach you the fundementals over an extended stay. You need some one trained and skilled not only in speaking Spanish properly but in teaching as well. You will need a Spanish speaking, degreed educator with courses and learning materials designed for those wanting to develop their present knowledge for private, educational or professional reasons.

Stay (03/06/2012) - Our first time at IslaMar and we enjoyed it very much! Loved having a home base that felt like home and we loved the fact that we were away from the cruise ship crowds. Midtown people and places to eat were wonderful. Our new favorite is Pescada Carllito’s. Great food at a great price. Please feel free to add a few new chaise lounges to the pool area as we are hoping to be back soon and with enough sunny days to enjoy the pool more. Thank you for the use of the cooler as we had a nice picnic outside of Playa Bonita. Gracias and adios – for now! Scott & Kathy R. ~ West, TX

(08/08/2015) - Stayed in this wonderful gated area located outside the tourist side of Cozumel and loved it! Located in the local's neighborhood we felt very safe and welcomed by the people on the streets and the wonderful hotel staff who were so easy to work with before our arrival and during our stay. Many good restaurants within a short walking distance, as was downtown and we were able to park our rental car right outside the entrance. We were a bit worried about being off the water during our visit in August but found a wonderful breeze coming through the compound the whole time both upstairs and down in the courtyard. Our room was very comfortable, there was a really comprehensive folder of recommendations on places to go and see, the pool was wonderful and the refrigerator was stocked with beer at $1 USD a bottle! Can't beat that! IslaMar is definitely worth considering for a stay and we will be back!!!! J. & D. Dannecker ~ White Lake, MI USA

(02/24/2015) - We had such a wonderful time here at IslaMar!! Perfection from the minute you arrive. Sherri & Mauricio are the perfect hosts – ever so welcoming and always making sure you are having the best time possible. IslaMar is a slice of paradise everyone should experience. Far enough away to escape the busy cruise/ferry ports but close enough to walk down to the waterfront to shop/dine. The staff at IslaMar were truly incredible. Always had a smile on their faces and always making sure we had everything we needed. Thanks to everyone at IslaMar for a holiday we will never forget! We will be back!!! M. Wood & K. Sweeney ~ Bowmanville, Ontario Canada

My wife and I are so pleased to have discovered your site. We fell in love with Cozumel the first time we visited. Our plans are to retire in Cozumel, your site will help us to grow in our knowledge of the island and hopefully begin our journey of protecting the islands unique heritage.
Thank you for your hard work, Nathan & Marcy Havner ~ Cheyenne Wyoming USA

Stay (02/23/2013) - This has been an awesome three (3) months in Cozumel. So sad to go home. Thank you Zuri for everything, you are wonderful. Sherri, you have a great group of people working for you. Thank you very much for everything. Hopefully I will return. I love all the people I met, from everywhere. This is really paradise!!! Jean St. H. ~ Augusta, MA
